supporting the background check bill, showing testimony of wayne lapierre supporting a background check. here is a little bit of that ad. >> the nra once supported background checks. >> we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory instant criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show. no loopholes anywhere for anyone. >> all right. i'll admit i need quick answers here. can a southern republican vote for the background check bill and get re-elected? >> a licensed dealer at a gun show already does a background check. that's already going on. what we're talking about is antique and special collectors and private sales. i think that's very difficult to legislate properly without killing gun show. >> there is a rural split almost more than anything else. urban politics are more supportive of this idea. >> yes. but i think both the southern republican and the urban republican should all be voting for universal background checks. look, connecticut was a game changer. we need to understand that. the gun issue is here. it's not going away. every other day, we are hearing about a tragedy

in the hearings this week on gun control. and you're also going to be speaking to wayne lapierre of the nra. these were very emotional hearings over this weekend. what do you want to talk to them about on sunday, chris? >> well, i guess, you know, look, every day you guys, because you cover it every day, there is another act of violence. another person who, you know, walks into a school, walks into a mall, walks into a work place, and starts shooting it up. you know, really? can we do nothing about it? is it impossible to? i don't know that i know necessarily what the answer is, whether it is more background checks. whether it is better mental health. the president obviously refused to call out his friend on in hollywood about all the violence and videogames and movies. can we, is it possible, and i hope, and in expanded you know, half an hour of fox news sunday, the first half hour when we talk to the two guests is it possible to find any common ground, sensible solutions? i know lapierre will never go for an assault weapons ban which kelly wants and obviously other people want but is ther

's an unstated irony in this as well. that lindsey graham knows full well, wayne lapierre knows full well, gayle trotter knows full well and sheldon whitehouse asked a question which lapierre ducked. if you talk to hard core members of the nra, they will admit, as senator whitehouse said, they will admit you don't need an ar-15 to defend your home or go hunting or go target shooting or anything else. they want those guns because the police have those guns. and they believe that they will have to fight the police, and they want to be as heavily armed as the police when that happens. that is the underlying philosophy. >> so they think in terms of a barricade situation where it's them against the law. >> absolutely. >> congresswoman, that is new. it used to be they would say we're sportsmen, we're hunters, and then they would say whatever, self-protection if you live in a tough neighborhood or whatever. now they openly say we have to fight the government. that's pretty close to insurrection time, isn't it? we have to be ready to fight the government? >> this is what we've been hearing for a couple

by paranoid people like the woman from kentucky who calls president obama a muslim, wayne lapierre who says black people will loot and riot, so everybody needs guns -- host: on guns? caller: when we get these people home and they do not have jobs because congress is blocking jobs, and they have ptsd, and we have all these problems in this country, i am wondering, should these people have access to 30- round assault weapons? guest: henry, thank you for your call and comments. the basic idea -- you're touching on issues like gun control and many other different things. the question is, can our people come back from afghanistan and have an gainful employment when they come back? the answer has to be, the nation has to do it in such a way that the answer must be yes. the reality of the situation is that unfortunately for many veterans, their unemployment rate is many -- is much higher than it should be, particularly in comparison to their civilian peers. this is a wake-up call for employers to take a look and see what they can do to help veterans that have so valiantly fought for our country in

and an effective one. >> jim, your latest article is about wayne lapierre's state of the union response. here's part of that. >> we will not be duped by the hypocrisy in the white house or the congress who would deny our right to semiautomatic technology and the magazines we need to defend ourselves and our families. >> it would seem, jim, that no measure of public sentiment can way the nra message. obviously they don't care, right? >> well, i saw that speech as playing to his base, conspiratorial, to put it vaguely. but there are new forces coalescing against them. it's not just president obama who's smart enough and, like susan suggests, knows there will probably be limited gains legislatively in congress. maybe background checks but not much beyond that. but he also knows he's got folks like michael bloomberg getting very serious about going after the nra. in the back yard of that same speech yesterday which was in parts fairly pointed. you've got mayor bloomberg throwing a minimum of $1.5 million into a special congressional race to replace jesse jackson, jr., who pled yesterday. he's spe

. as for the nra, the gun lobby's outspoken wayne lapierre is holding a news conference to respond to the state of the union speech. as for the justice department study, the nra is not saying how it it got it. wolf? >> do we expect there to be separate votes on gun control, one on the magazines, one on assault-type weapons, one on universal background checks or are they going to try to wrap it up into comprehensive piece of legislation? >> i think that's undecided at this point. harry reid is a big gun enthusiast and what that office is saying right now whatever coming out of the judiciary committee, they are looking at an assault-weapons ban, high-capacity magazines and universal background checks will get a vote. there will be a vote on some of these measures. there will be amendments avow lowed. as for the president, he called for a vote and it looks like he'll get them. >> separate votes but -- >> he'll get votes. >> we'll see what he can achieve on these sensitive issues. jim acosta, thanks very much. >>> president obama hit the road today. >>> also, another day on a hot ship overflowing w

'm a shooter and an nra member and i think wayne lapierre is a bean bag and he doesn't speak for me. [ laughter ] >> wow. >> caller: but i'm just a little concerned, i think the message that the nra people are trying to get across is they think the second amendment should be preserved and protected. and because we do in our united states code a thing about the unorganized militia and i think it's still needed. can you imagine something like the great depression [ inaudible ] all at once, i mean right now with the way the violent nature of our society is. >> stephanie: uh-huh. >> caller: the gangsteres are armed and ready to take whatever we have. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: go ahead. >> stephanie: no go ahead. finish what you were saying sorry. >> caller: well, i just think that -- you know, for us people that -- that want to maybe go out and help during times of crisis that are called up we should have high-quality weapons. >> stephanie: right, but there's a big leap from slingshots and bows and arrows to military-style assault weapons don't you think? >> c
